For a second, i thought you had taken 40 dire wolves. Thank god i was wrong.

I would consider a second vargulf, and splitting down you skellie units to 3 rather than 2 and raising in the first turn, but otherwise, a good list

Thanks, I like the sound of a second varghulf so Ill tinker with the skellies and ghouls to try to raise the points.

struggling to raise points to get enough for second varghulf without dropping my core percentage below the 25% mark.

Options:

shrink skellie and ghoul units to 15 and take corpse cart from necromancer and add as core choice.

shrink GG unit to 15-20 raising 48-108 points meaning less of a cut to skellies et al.

lose fell bats

lose hand of dust from Lord
